The Need for Food Education for Kids #Infographic

School Lunch

Eating is arguably the most important component of health, particularly for children. What we eat, how often we eat, and even where we eat can have lifelong effects on more than just the physical development of kids. It can affect how they operate throughout their lives in other areas as well.

The meal habits of children has been a point of controversy for some time. First Lady Michelle Obama has made an effort to slow childhood obesity, a problem that has been growing for decades. It hasn’t been without push back; her plan has been met with animosity from children and contempt from parents who feel that the forced lunch mandates are making school lunch less enjoyable and making kids avoid eating them altogether.

Minimalist Views of Classic Superhero Vehicles #Infographic

Wonder Woman

Not all superheroes are like Superman. Most of them need help to get to where they’re needed at any given time, so having a good ride is imperative. It wouldn’t be effective if they had to take a cab or drive a Camry, so they normally have something very cool to get them from point A to point B.

Some, like the Batmobile, have their own really cool gadgets that give them a character life of their own. Others such as the Silver Surfer Surfboard is simply a mode of transportation. In this infographic by Cherished Number Plates, they take a minimalist perspective on the various vehicles. Extra points for their clever depiction of Wonder Woman’s ride. Read more

Is America’s Sweet Tooth Too Big #Infographic

Drinking Coca Cola

There is very little doubt that the dietary habits in the United States are poor. Obesity continues to rise despite improved food education. Health problems associated with poor diet and sugar consumption are not getting better. As a country, we’ve grown content to follow the cravings of our sweet tooth.

It’s not universal. Many sugar alternatives are available and there are plenty of people who swear off sweets altogether. However, this doesn’t change the fact that the average American drinks 53 gallons of soft drinks per year.

10 Places that May Disappear Before You get to See Them #Infographic

Taj Mahal

Of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, only the Great Pyramid at Giza remains. Time is a killer when it comes to both natural and man-made structures, especially with earthquakes as a primary culprit for ancient destruction, so we will never get to see the Lighthouse of Alexandria or any of the others.

Today, there are wonders around the world that are also starting to fade away, whether through circumstance or simply because they’re not able to be kept up properly. Thankfully, we have the technology to keep stronger records with images and videos, but nothing can replace the awesomeness of actually visiting and seeing these amazing creations.

The Hellcat Numbers Compared to Competitors #Infographic

2015 Challenger Hellcat

Dodge has made some big waves the last couple of years by slapping a cool badge and sick performance on its Charger and Challenger models. The “Hellcat” variations are hot and they’re flying off the showrooms at any Dodge dealer that gets a hold of one.

It isn’t just the speed and beautiful styling that’s making them so popular. It’s the price. There are much slower cars with much higher price tags than these beasts. Thanks to the way that Dodge made the Charger a sedan in its latest revival (a move panned by many but that is paying off in sales), one does not have to settle for the Challenger coupe to get the performance.

The Mission to Pluto #Infographic

Pluto

We know very little about the “planet” Pluto because it’s (usually) the furthest planet from us. NASA has the New Horizons mission that has been heading out to study the tiny planet for a while. Now, it’s getting close enough to make it infographic-worthy!

Jupiter is to thank for this. During its pass, the probe used Jupiter’s gravity to give it a velocity boost, giving it the juice to reach Pluto in 2019 rather than 2036 had it not taken a Jupiter-boost.

The Small Business Marketing Budget #Infographic

Small Business

America was built on the concept of small business. It is the centerpiece of capitalism despite what bankers and activists believe. While the mega-corporations feel that they drive the economy and the Occupy Wherever group wants to agree and blame everything on them, the reality is that it’s the people running small businesses who truly drive the economy.

WordPress vs WordPress Infographic

Wordpress Logo

When two platforms compete, they’re usually not so closely affiliated. That’s not the case when it comes to WordPress which promotes both WordPress.com and WordPress.org. The former is the one that has millions of free and occasionally paid bloggers using a toned-down version of the master software. The latter is the version that is software only; users have to provide their own hosting and maintenance.

How Much Do Nurses Make? #Infographic

Nurses Salary

The medical arena has always been considered a lucrative one. For years, there was a discrepancy that caused division at hospitals when it came to nurses versus doctors and other professionals. Nurses had to get college degrees just as other medical professionals, but their pay was often much lower than other positions at the hospital. Today, things are getting better for them.
